ROC wants to take the Chersonese

Russian Orthodox Church wants to get their property in the Museum-reserve Chersonese Taurian in Sevastopol. ROC seeks the transfer of 24 objects. It is reported portal “Rosbalt” with reference to local TV channel NTS.


According to the Dean of Sevastopol district Archpriest Sergei Haloti, this initiative will help “begin the process of genuine development of the National reserve”.


As noted Halota, has already begun the process of preparing the documents. All – in the framework of the implementation of the law 327, dated 11 November 2010 “On the transfer of Church property which is in state or municipal ownership”. That is, according to the Dean, the Simferopol and Crimean diocese obey the law of the Russian Federation.


All buildings that are currently on the territory of Chersonesos are the structures of the former Vladimir monastery, says Kaluta. In his opinion, the state is obliged to take care of the construction of the Museum complex to host exhibits of Tauric Chersonesos. Because “Neither the Soviet Union nor Ukraine today, the Russian Federation, to date, have done nothing to this Museum is really a Museum,” he explained.


The ROC, there is a concept of development of the National preserve of Tauric Chersonesos. It is expressed in the construction of a modern Museum complex.


We will remind, earlier Sergius Haluta was appointed to the post of Director of the Museum-reserve. However, it was flatly oksalis to work with him, and eventually Dean of the Sevastopol district had to leave this post.
